Comanche County Medical Center invites residents to discuss community health needs.
Special to Beneath the Surface News
Bob Ellzey, an experienced hospital executive and consultant with the Texas Organization of Rural & Community Hospitals, is conducting several one-hour meetings for residents to gather needed perspectives on health needs in Comanche.
The meetings are part of the required assessment process which happens every three years in hospitals across the country.
Residents will participate in a guided discussion with Ellzey, who takes the results, along with other demographic and health data, and presents the key findings Comanche County Medical Center’s board of directors.
The board will then review and select health priorities to address.
Results of the 2020 community health assessment process led to the addition of pediatric, mental health and expanded chronic care services provided by CCMC.
Residents 18 and older are encouraged to participate.
All meetings will be held on Thursday, Nov. 9:
• 10-11 a.m. and 1-2 p.m. at the CECA Conference Room, 349 Industrial Blvd in Comanche.
• 4-5 p.m. and 6-7 p.m. at De Leon City Hall Auditorium, 125 S. Texas Street in De Leon.
